What Is Sandalwood

Sandalwood

Sandalwood is a medium sized evergreen tree that comes from the same botanical family as European mistletoe. Originating from East and West India and widely grown in Western Australia, these heavy, yellow in colour, aromatic trees retain their fragrance for decades. Valued for centuries for their rich oils as well as wood, sandalwoods are extensively used in perfumery, medicine, food and even the technology.

For the tree to produce a valuable, good quality wood and a high level fragrant oils takes at least 15 years before it can be harvested. Hence sandalwood is classified as the most valuable tree in the world and a second most expensive wood after the African Blackwood.

What Does Sandalwood Smell Like?

Sandalwood trees grow up to the height of 9-10 meters and both tree and the roots are used to extract the aromatic oils, which is done via steam distillation process, producing an intense scented gold like looking liquid.
Sandalwood essential oil smells very woody (as one would expect wood to smell!), but the scent is not overpowering, but warm and powdery, sometimes even creamy, depending on the type of the tree.

This sweet, fresh sandalwood aroma is long-lasting and is perfect base note to woody, oriental perfumes as well as valuable fixative to floral and citrus fragrances.

What Other Notes Go Well With Sandalwood?

Sandalwood is a very versatile essential oil, which has been used, appreciated and loved for centuries. Its rich, sweet, woody scents blends perfectly with number of different notes. It is a perfect fixative for floral notes such as jasmine and geranium, and citrusy notes like bergamot or grapefruit. It also pairs exquisitely with spicy notes of black pepper, frankincense and amber.

Here are few more notes that will blend well with sandalwood:

  • Amber
  • Myrth
  • Rose
  • Yang Ylang
  • Bergamot

What Is Amber

Amber is fossilized tree resin, an essence discharged by the trees that is hardened, which mostly come from the pine trees. Since ancient times amber is valued for its colour and natural beauty and is widely used in jewellery, folk medicine, cosmetics and perfumery.

The Baltic region is commonly known as a largest source of amber, dating 44 million years ago and is regularly mined since 1945. Amber is also found off the costs of Sicily and England as well as Lebanon and Jordan.

What Does Amber Smell Like?

A natural amber scent is very warm, rich and earthy and gets more fragrant when ground or warmed. If heated under right conditions amber would produce an oil which if mixed with nitric acid would create a resin of an unusual musky odor. Burned, amber would create a more pinewood like scent. However, natural amber is rarely used in modern perfumery as it produces very little scent. Scents referred to as an amber are often synthetically created and are described to have a warm, musky and earthy fragrance.

The natural scent of amber used in perfumery, is often obtained from labdanum gum resin found in a twigs of European rock rose. Benzoin or copal resin is often mixed IN with labdanum to produce amber perfumes. Vanilla, cloves and other synthetic materials are sometimes used to help to intensify the aroma.

What Other Notes Go Well With Amber?

Amber blends in nicely with woody notes, resins and vanilla. And depending on the desired intensity of the scent amber, if combined with a larger proportion of frankincense, would create a lighter and fresher scent. Where else a combination of patchouli and vanilla would add more intense and sweet aroma to the amber fragrance.

Other notes amber blends in well with:

  • Sandalwood
  • Myth
  • Orange
  • Rose
  • Geranium

ORMONDE JAYNE Ormonde Woman Eau de Parfum

Review

Ormonde Woman eau de parfum by Ormonde Jane is a creation of a British perfumers, and is the first perfume to be made using a unique scent of black Hemlock absolute as its main ingredient.

Dusky and seductive this signature scent is an extraordinary combination of woody essences and elegant aromas of flowers and precious oils.

4. Jicky Extrait by Guerlain

Guerlain Jicky Extrait de Parfum

Review

Jicky Extrait by Guerlain is the fragrance that is a pure delight for both – men and women. Named after a woman, young Aime Guerlain was in love with at his youth, this fresh fragrance is a wonderful example of classic perfumery.

Jicky, is like a break through from the traditional and the beginning of more controversial, unique perfumery, based more on emotion and feeling that fragrance delivers, rather than just a blind copy of the flowery aromas.

Oriental, woody and fresh Jicky Extrait is an astonishing fragrance that delivers a contrasting notes and plays well on interpreting the sense of smell between both male and female.

It is a long lasting perfume, that would see you throughout the day or an evening, if you choose it as your going out fragrance. Also, Jicky Extrait is an all year rounder that is suitable for any season.

Founded by Pierre-François Pascal Guerlain in 1828, a legendary French perfume house Guerlain has an incredible 175 years of passion and tradition. Known for using the highest quality, luxurious and rare materials for its perfumes, they were pioneers in use of syntetic ingredients, and Jicky was the first perfume to which Guerlain added a syntetic component called coumarin.

Charming bottle design, inspired by 19th century medicine bottles, has almost a masculine shape to it, topped with a stopper somewhat resembling champagne cork. It is finished with a tassel dangling down the neck, with an added sparkle for more feminine look.

Jicky is a magical perfume combining freshness and spiciness, which at the time of invention in 1889 it may have been a bit confusing for women, but was absolutely loved by men. But today fresh, full-bodied masculine fragrance is a delight to both women and men alike.

5. Interlude Woman by Amouage

AMOUAGE Interlude Woman eau de parfum

Review

Amouage Interlude Eau de parfum reflects life’s adversity and confusion and invites us to unite, to stop in that moment of time and enjoy peace and calm, and a bit of tranquility. Interlude Woman is an exciting floral fragrance containing a contentious combination of notes.

Top notes of bittersweet grapefruit and bergamot create a bit of a conflict, where else the heart notes of rose, frankincense and sandalwood are more disguised in this combination with an unusual blend of nut, kiwi, coffee, honey and oud. Contradicting aromas are then embraced with a tones of amber and vanilla in the base, adding warmth and sweetness to the fragrance.

This intriguing fruity, middle eastern type of scent is best to be worn in evening. The aroma is very unique and quite intense, but not too heavy, and it could probably be fine to wear during a day, but to me it is a bit too intense to be a day time fragrance. Same applies to the seasons, I feel it is too heavy for the summer, but would be perfect in cold wintery weather.

The perfume is a very long lasting, as you can guess (thanks to spicy, woody notes) and it will last all day/night without needing to reapply.

Amouage is a luxury perfume house based in Oman, Saudi Arabia. It was established in 1983 by Sultan of Oman, Sayyid Hamad bin Hamoud al bu Said, who’s dream was to bring the Arabian art of perfumery to the region.

Perfumers from well known perfume houses help to develop scents for Amouage, but they only use Middle East perfume ingredients such as agarwood, rose and spices. For example Guy Robert, well known French perfumer, who worked with Hermes, Dior, Rochas perfume houses, in 1983 created Amouage Gold.

Amouage Women perfumes come in beautifully designed bottles which are very traditional shape that replicates a shape of the Palace Ruwi Mosque in Oman.

This beautiful and interesting fruity fragrance is very specific and unusual, and may take some time to get used to and to adapt to it, and you may never like it. But if you get to love it, you will find it quite unique, cozy, elegant and delightful.

Bergamot, Grapefruit

6. Mirages Babylon By Prada

PRADA Mirages Babylon eau de parfum

Review

Prada Mirages Babylon is an oriental/woody perfume made of only three main ingredients – labdanum, sandalwood and amber. Part of Olfactories collection, Babylon is an interpretation of an ancient city in a modern world.

Fresh and warming scent of Prada Mirages Babylon gives that cooling sensation and brings up a mirage of a magically created lucent sand palace in a middle of the desert.

The sandalwood blends in nicely with a heart note of oriental scent of labdanum, extracted from the rockrose shrub cistus, and the warming note of amber in the base.

This luxurious blend inspired by Oriental culture is an interpretation of the balance between warmth and spiciness, and the cleanliness and freshness.

Perfect to wear all year round, this lush spicy aroma is said to be more of a daytime fragrance, but due to its intensity and longevity I would personally choose it as my evening going out scent.

Prada Mirages Babylon Eau de Perfum is like everlasting! You will forget you need to reapply as it stays on forever, literally. Very long lasting and very intense, and if you are lover of spice and intensity, this fragrance is the way to go.

Mirages collection containing Moonlight Shadow, Babylon and Desert Serenade is a creation of the perfumer Daniela Andrier. Miuccia Prada who worked in collaboration with Daniela, started this collection with the idea of a blend made with raw elements, sensual essences that desired all across the world, a gourmet scent that would please even the most pretentious experts.

The sophisticated bottle design is an inspiration of a new feeling, a perception resulting from this charming, captivating blend revealing exotic temptations. Beautifully tailored, embellished with a golden label, this dark coloured bottle comes stylishly presented in a silk pouch inside the box decorated in a textured Prada saffiano leather.

Prada Mirages Babylon unisex fragrance extends the research of sense and smell. This luxurious blend is a true revolution in the world of perfumery, opening up new horizons for the exploration and experimentation to bring in new, modern sensations, the aromas that would transport us to unknown territories of the universe of fragrance.

7. COCO by Chanel

CHANEL COCO Eau de Parfum

Review

Coco Eau de Parfum is a true declaration of Gabrielle Chanel’s life. A reflection of her personality, her love for fashion, and representation of an extravagant baroque style that Gabrielle was very fond of.

An elegant, iconic perfume is a celebration of contrasting notes of oriental spices and powdery aromas of flowers and fruits. The opening notes of Sicilian mandarin unveils hearty notes of jasmine, ylang-ylang and Tunisian orange, with tonka, patchouli and benzoin embracing all aromas in unison.

Leading notes of rose and amber with a spicy, sweet and warm note from the cloves, makes this fragrance familiar and unique at the same time. Each of which is a delightful experience.

Coco Eau de Parfum is my signature Autumn/Winter scent and I find it more enjoyable during cold seasons rather than summer or spring time. Oriental spicy scent is strong and powerful and makes this perfume an ideal evening fragrance.

Bold but comforting, warm but moderately fresh, this complex perfume is very long lasting. Couple of sprays will be enough for it to last all day/night long.

In 1921 Ernest Beaux created perfume which, according to Gabrielle Chanel, was supposed to be “a woman’s perfume with a woman’s scent”, rare and powerful.

It was then named N°5 simply because it was the fifth sample of the fragrance Gabrielle Chanel picked from the composition she was presented by her perfumer.Jacques Polge, the CHANEL perfumer since 1978, has re-worked the scent in 1986 and created a stronger, fuller version of N°5: the eau de parfum.

The revolutionary bottle was chosen by Gabrielle Chanel herself and represents a clean straight lines. Clear glass bottle decorated with a white label and topped with gem-cut shaped cap finishes this very minimalist design.

Chanel Coco Eau de parfum is a femininity in every drop. A floral bouquet in a bottle. Timeless and legendary, the perfume that I simply cannot lie without.

8. Samsara by Guerlain

Guerlain Samsara Eau de Parfum

Review

Samsara Eau de Parfum by Guerlain is considered to be a pioneer woody fragrance for women crafted with such amount of sandalwood, blending ylang-ylang, tonka bean and vanilla. Created in 1989 Samsara is a delightful oriental aroma, wrapped in harmonious odour of flowers.

Fascinating, perfectly balanced and enticing Samsara will take you to the heights of aromatic jasmine intertwined with warmth of ylang-ylang flower and sweetness of iris.

Tonka bean and vanilla harmonize the combination, and the generous amount of sandalwood evokes the oriental intensity of this astonishingly elegant scent.

Rich, soft and comforting, sandalwood works well with vanilla, amber and patchouli tones, revealing a fresh, vivid side of the perfume.

This beautifully delightful, intense woody fragrance is definitely an evening aroma, which will stay on your skin for long hours. Best worn in cold season, Samsara Eau de Parfum is one of my favorite Autumn scents.

Jean-Paul Guerlain created Samsara Eau de Parfum for the woman of his life. To acquire the purest sandalwood and jasmine, the favourite aromas of “Lady Samsara”, Jean-Paul Guerlain travelled to India numerous times. Such ingredients were not used in perfumery at the time and were religious contributions only.

Designed in 1853 by Pierre-François-Pascal Guerlain for the Empress Eugenie, wife of Napoleon III, this exquisite bottle represents a symbol of the Empire – the bee, which is now a signature symbol of Guerlain’s perfume house.

Samsara Eau de Parfum is a fascinating potion of seduction, created for a woman who is confident with herself and who found a balance and the harmony in her life. This exciting, powerful, heady oudor, composed with raw, top quality ingredients, will open your eyes and will transport you to the radiant world of timeless aromas.
